Sometimes people are simply unreal. Suspended an employee today for tardiness and a no call/no show...her excuse was she didn't feel good anyway and another employee told her it was OK to take off work. WTF, who is the supervisor here, jesus.

Another one that gets me is when a person calls out of work because they are either drunk or hungover. Whenever we get a new employee in our workplace, I give them a heads up that you can't call out of work because of a hangover. Our hourly budget only allows for 2 workers on a shift for most days, so when someone calls out, that's 99% percent of the store calling out. I would say 50%, but that doesn't emphasize the seriousness of a call out...We're lenient with tardiness if they call in early saying they are going to be a bit late, but they have to make that call.
This remindse of my radioshack days where I usually ended up working by myself for half a day every shift I had. Boss would be doing "managerial duties" in the back and the second worker wouldn't be in usually til my shift was either almost over or just ending. I hated it, especially because I was told our weekly work hours were too low from the district over expending its budget. Meanwhile, every radioshack I ever visited always had 2 people on the floor and 1 in the back.

Course, my favorite was scheduling the work week a day before the new week started, but if I had to get a day off or rescheduled, I had to ask 2 weeks in advance.

The best thing ever is gaming after you're done exams/papers.  That self-rewarded break to just lounge and relax is wonderful.  I do that for a few days, then I creep back into life and make plans with all the people I lost touch with because school hole'd me up for so long, and I open the windows to let the stale air out and the fresh freedom air in.

Totally agree! Although it is usually my fiance opening the windows and getting the fresh air in :P

Aw, a message from King Salty himself.



Certainly doesn't help that no new Metroid title has really come to sooth the burn left by that game.
Ah well, at least we got about 40 new Mario games in that span of time. x)

The group of fans that dislike Other M are not gonna magically change their mind because of a new Metroid. Besides, the series usually doesn't get many releases in the span of a generation so who knows when we will see another one.

Personally I would like to see Masahiro Sakurai in charge of one Metroid game. I'm certain he would be able to make something interesting with the IP.

Tales of the Tempest is the quintessential RPG. The best part is how whenever your party stops to rest you get a beautiful ambient campfi-HEY WAIT A MINUTE

I don't understand the Batman remark.  I guess I'm glad? Because it should? xD

I find most mainstream games this past generation to focus on a "cinematic" approach and pump all the money into presentation rather than gameplay; so it's nice to see a game with a good number of mechanics, places to explore, things to collect, and is a joy to play.  That's also the reason I enjoyed the new Tomb Raider much more than Uncharted.

Hmm, yeah I can see that.  I know I've been pretty mixed with how Mainstream....hell, any game tends to present itself.  Certainly a lot of the big western releases have a knack for flair.
I definitely enjoyed Lara's Bad Day: The Game the new Tomb Raider, I thought it was a fun game with an interesting lead in a shitty situation played up well.  I DO enjoy Uncharted, but I can't help but roll my eyes (and smile a bit) when they kind of hit a bit too close to that 'witty American hero in an impossible situation' as he escapes death about 10 times in a row and still manages to say something cool.  I find both titles fun for what they are though.

Really haven't been able to do much after my marathon of FFX. School is ramping up because it is getting to the end of the semester so I have a ton of papers to write and chapters to read and study for final exams. I'm at the end of Infamous Second Son I think.
Code:
Reggie just got killed and Delsin wants to invade the huge building to find stone lady and seek revenge
Once I finish this playthough, I'm intrigued enough to do an evil playthrough and see the differences... especially since this one is fairly short. I have no time to play games and I'm almost finished for crying out loud.

I kind of like the Demon Gaze character designs... and not just in a perverted way, either.

... Dice liked the game...

Woah woah woah.  I think "liked enough to play, but never want to play again" ranks a bit more negatively than simply "liking it".

IIRC, I gameshark'd the last stretch because I said "fuckit" and got miserable with the battle system by the end.

It is fair to see I'm a sucker for shitty games if they have an amazing atmosphere and good enough plot/characters.  NieR ranks, Legend of Mana ranks, Saga II ranks, and so does Tales of Legendia... as long as I'm not playing the game "normally" (i.e.; with gameshark).

Haha fair enough. I have plenty of games I liked but would never play again and would gladly recommend those games to others, but I understand what you mean.
